Paul’s Place (phase 2) programme has been awarded 300,800 over 3 years by The National Lottery Community Fund.
The aim of the Paul’s Place (phase 2) programme is to:
To connect those individuals and families affected by suicide with each other, thus increasing their social network with people who have experienced the same profound loss as they have.
Pauls Place will remove barriers to accessing support and provide a holistic person-centred support intervention that is tailor made for them, which can include access to specialist counsellors for 1 to 1 and via group sessions.
Access to Trek Therapy walks, led by fully qualified outdoor specialist and accompanied by qualified therapists, alongside others who have experienced the loss due to suicide of a loved one.
Access an advocate who will enable them to navigate their way through the often complex tasks that need completing, post suicide. Access support groups, whilst engaging in a craft activity with individuals who understand what they have and are going through.
All of the above has been developed with our post suicide community at the heart of it and the bid was designed to address the gaps identified by some past and present beneficiaries of our Paul’s Place programme.
We would like to take this opportunity to thank The National Lottery Community Fund, this funding will provide much needed aftercare support and offer a community in connecting those individuals and families across Merseyside affected by suicide with each other. Trek Therapy walk, group sessions and a variety of wellbeing activities are some of the aftercare elements included in the Paul’s Place phase 2 programme.
